Things that are long over due..

birthday-cake-clip-art-8

Sometimes life catches up on you and you don’t get round to do what you want to. In my case this happens a lot! It seems like there’s not enough hours in the day to do everything, so I have to prioritise. Unfortunately sometimes a post comes second to other things such as homework.

 

All these things in this post are events that are long overdue and I’m sorry. I hope you not angry with me and just happy that I am doing this post now, even if it is late. So here we go…..

 

Birthday Trip To London and more

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

This trip was instead of a party to celebrate my birthday. We set off around 8.30am  and travelled all the way to where the tube begins. Then we paid around £5.00 to travel into London on the tube. (This was the cheapest way to get us four there and back. It is a great way to go to London but you need a willing driver, lucky for me that was my mum. Also its so much easier and cheaper. The train was going to be around £95 just for travel there and back, but with this option it was a lot cheaper.)

 

When we arrived in London we visted many places including Picadilly and Covent Garden- shown in some of the pictures above. We used the tube ticket that could take us anywhere and it was fabulous and so easy for us all to get around. When we first decided to go we said that, we can not go to London without watching a show. But we looked online and the only tickets for under £60 had a restricted view- we wanted to see Wicked- so we decided we would buy the tickets in London when we first got there. When we arrived at the first of our tube stops we saw a place selling tickets(all legal and it was one that was there permanently!) So we asked the man and we got amazing tickets on the balcony for £50 a ticket – bargain! So we bought them.

 

The show was amazing! If you ever think of going to see it, don’t hesitate, its really good and perfect if you have seen the wizard of oz. All the actors were amazing and the scenery was too, I loved it.

 

Finally we went shopping so that I could use money and vouchers I had. This was the most remember able time. The fact it was around 6-7pm and the shops were buzzing. Everyone was having a good time and I loved the fact that it was dark and people were shopping like it was daytime. This is when my love for London began!

 

Clothes Show Live

Although I had been to the Clothes Show  before with my mum I had never been with a group and this time it was with a group of friends and all girls from my school. This was a girly day to spend shopping and have fun and have lookey at some of the lastest trends. It is so good and if you wonder whether to go, do go please!! It is perfect for anyone who likes shoes, bags, clothes, fashion, beauty, models and so much more……(well that’s most girls)

 

With every ticket you get a pass to go to watch the catwalk show, for me this is the best bit of the whole day! Each year the catwalk show has a different them and they base everything around this theme. Last years- December- was a day in the life of a fashion model. It contained everything from casting to a shoot and a award show to the after party. The models walk the catwalks with trends based on the scene and there is all so dancers, they are amazing and they nearly always do one really amazing dance in a couple.

 

The show is also good if you like dance. You can also go to a dance show and there are various classes to join with, only if you want of course. Also there is a lot of dance wear stalls such as Pineapple Dance. So you can get some new dance stuff too for the new year. It is perfect for getting cheap chrimo presents and they also have discounts on things such as Ice watches and jewellery. You need a lot of spending money!

 

It finally happened and a post on an event will be up very soon!

This look is so summery and girly yet brings in so many fashion elements. The floral print peplum top and silver strappy heels- bang on trend- items that may be expensive but are definetly worth investing in!

 

This top is a staple piece and can be worn in so many different ways and occasions. It’s really good for a summer evening meal or just a more casual outfit with jeans and a sandals. PERFECT!

 

Love you lots like jelly tots

Ten High-Street Buys For Under £20

#Ten High Street Buys

Are you on a budget? Do you want to look fashionable but don’t have the money? Do you find it hard to find good buys for under £20? Do you find finding bargains hard?

 

Now a days, 2013, finding a bargain can be hard. Many shops are putting their prices up and are still expecting us to pay it, but our wages are not going up, so what are we supposed to do?

 

This is why this post is being created by yours truly. I real strongly about the fact that you can get bargains- you just need time  to look and know where to look to find them, (two things that many people don’t have). I know everyone wants to look good even if they have £1000 to spend or £50. So I want to help you to save money and look fabulous!

 

“You don’t have to spend a lot of money on clothes to look good!”

 

 

Rovena Roller Hat With Bow In Red £12.99-missguided , Neon Perspex Collar Tips £10.00-Topshop , Green Tye Dye Pop Socks  £4.00-Topshop, Bag £14.99-H&M , G21 Eye Print Blouse £18.00-George at Asda , Jersey Dip Dye Maxi Skirt £12.00-George at Asda , Yellow lily sunglasses £8.00-Dorothy Perkins , Rose rhinestone alice band £8.50-Dorothy Perkins , High-Waisted Scarf Print Shorts £10.50-Forever 21 , Neon Chiffon Top £8.75-Forver 21.

 

I love so many of these items because they unique and very vintage/retro. They are all rocking present trends of trends for present or summer 2013. Perfect, summer shopping early. I also love the unique items in there and because they are so good for the  money and if they were designer items they would be a fortune such as the shirt and shorts. These are some of my favourite pieces that I have mentioned.

 

Please spend time looking around, especially online! Have fun!

Fashion Trend Of The Day

White

This trend has gone completely minimalistic and plain. Pull out your white items and rock this trend. After the monochrome trend every one re-kindled their love for white and this trend was born. The favourite’s for this trend include a white tuxedo jacket, white suits, plain dresses, lace, etc. Rock this trend and go all out white….
